What are these violet dashed lines?

I recently upgraded from TC Deluxe 21 to TC Deluxe 2016.  Since the upgrade I have noticed annoying violet dashed lines that popup soon after opening an existing drawing.  I think they are called "Construction Lines" but don't know for sure.  When I hit the space bar they disappear.  In TC Deluxe 21 I seem to remember them and I possibly was able to turn off this feature, but I can't say for sure.

See attached JPG....

I want to turn off this feature so that they don't appear when I work.

Thanks in advance for any helpful suggestions.

On the Snaps toolbar, disable "Extended Ortho" and "Apparent Intersection."

Try turning off the Always show Auxiliary lines options

Thanks for the quick replies!  Yesterday, I tried Henry's method and it worked great.  This is a GREAT forum to ask questions in.  Sometimes the learning curve can be steep.  Thanks....
